Location: Las Vegas, NV
Duration:10 seconds
Star like object moving north west to south east at higher rate of speed than an aircraft but much slower than a meteor. No strobe or other blinking lights that would indicate an aircraft (at least not a conventional one) . The intensity and color of the light was that of a star. The altitude was over 10000 feet. It was moving in my direction at an angle of about 30 degrees from where I was and by the time I realized it was something unusual the object abruptly stopped (,way before reaching a patch of clouds) for a fraction of a second then I could clearly saw it dimming, first half way the brightenes then completely vanished like shouting straight up in to the outer space. This disapering act was at the most 2 seconds maybe more like one. The direction it was coming from coincides with almost a straight line to Groom lake ( Area 51). I am 100% it was not an airplane , meteor or an optical illusion. I watch the sky often and I am very familiar with the ! above . This is however the first time I have wittenes such an event my self . Wonder if any one else can relate to last nights event or others similar
